Creative Heart Monday 1-11-16 "The Face"

Happy Monday Morning!!

It was a "Faces" weekend for me.  I couldn't stop drawing and painting them.  However, I had to deal with my nemesis "the hair".  I have issues with hair on paper and in real life. (for those of you that know know what I'm talking about).

 (my hair, actually, looked like this in the '90s)

The interesting thing about painting faces is that you never, really, know what she's going to look like until you get into it.  It can be very intimidating and I have to keep reminding myself that I'm not performing life or death surgery....if it's a mess, I CAN paint over it.  The most difficult part for me is just getting started.  Once I commit, it's easy.
